Hope you all had a great week, i’m so glad its finally Friday. Today i’m not doing in depth reviews more like a little thought on each of the concealers i’ve been using recently. Four out of the Five concealers are available locally and the One is a brand from the UK i fell inlove with
💗 CATRICE 💗 Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer
COLOUR (010) Porcellain
ABOUT Dark under-eye circles, skin irregularities and redness are a thing of the past – the Liquid Camouflage offers optimal coverage and care. The liquid formula is highly pigmented, waterproof and therefore particularly long-lasting. The practical flock applicator guarantees an easy application.
MY SAY Catrice are just one of those brands that always seem to get it right. I’ve been using this concealer for about 2 years. Its high coverage and when blended with a damp makeup sponge it has a matte finish that i set lightly with a loose powder and lasts a good 8-10 hours

💗 WET n WILD 💗 PhotoFocus Concealer
COLOUR Light Ivory
ABOUT Wet n Wild Photofocus Medium Tawny Pressed Powder 7.5 g contains light-diffusing pigments to give your skin a veil of silky natural perfection in photos and in real life. Wear it alone, on bare skin, or over Photo Focus foundation for a flawless finish. Reduces shine throughout the day.
MY SAY I’ve been using this new concealer for a week and its not too bad. The coverage is great, its on the thicker side when it comes to the formula but it doesn’t blend as great, it tends to sit in the crease lines. I’ve battled a little bit, I’ve had to blend and then apply a second layer. Its not the greatest formula but it has great coverage.

💗 L.A Girl 💗 Pro Conceal HD High Definition Concealer
ABOUT L.A. Girl’s HD Pro Concealer is crease-resistant with opaque coverage in a creamy, yet lightweight texture. The long-wearing formula camouflages darkness under the eyes, redness and skin imperfections. Provides complete, natural-looking coverage,evens skin tone, covers dark circles and minimizes fine lines around the eyes.
MY SAY This is one of my staple concealers in my collection. The consistency and coverage are amazing and having a brush head makes it so easy to apply. It covers my dark circles under my eyes so well. Definitely a re-purchase for as long as they keep making/selling it.

💗 ESSENCE 💗 Camouflage Full Coverage Concealer
COLOUR (05) Ivory
ABOUT Long-lasting and highly pigmented, the liquid-creamy texture reliably covers-up dark circles under the eyes and other skin irregularities. for a natural, wide-awake look.
MY SAY Another great Essence product. This concealer has a great thicker formula, i find it a little difficult to blend but, once it does blend the coverage is great and lightens my dark circles under my eyes very well. Only thing about this concealer i have an issue with is the bottle. When its on the empty side its very difficult to get the last remaining product out the bottle. I feel there is a lot of wastage with this.

💗 MUA 💗 Cover and Conceal Concealer
ABOUT Lightweight concealer for imperfections with a smooth flawless finish. Conceal imperfections, under-eye circles and spots on the face with this concealer wand. The creamy lightweight texture blends in to create that flawless finish with a natural coverage that lasts all day.
MY SAY One of my favourite concealers ever! I think when ever i hear a friend / colleague is flying from the UK to SA i always order 5 or 6 bottles at a time. I absolutely love this, the formula, blendability (is that a word?) and the coverage are spot on! I can’t imagine not having this little bottle in my life especially with that price tag.
